How to beat Lin Dan? Advice to Lee CW
Everyone wants to beat Lindan, but only 2 of them have been successed.
Bao CL has been trying that for 10+ years, actually Bao did pretty good, he did upset Lin Dan to steal the the world youth championship although Bao had never been better than Lin dan. But all people think now Bao was better than Lin Dan when they were teenagers, because people just live in that one snapshot. People don't care Lin dan actually beat Bao CL all the other time when they were juniors.
Taufik was another succesfful example, his performance was never comparable to Lin Dan. But he managed to steal the OG and WC. Then he became the player who can win whenever he wants to.
Therefore for Lee CW, the best strategy is not to fight seriously with Lin Dan at each tournament, he should learn from Bao CL and Taufik, not even want to win those matches. Just try to steal a title at OG or WC, (those smaller scaled tournaments are much easier to steal a victory), then make a snapshot, let the whole history frozen at that point, then he will become another player of winning as long as he wants to.
For Chen Jin, it's clear that his strategy is to wait Lindan's retirement. That's practical for him, but not fit for Lee CW.

Although i am lin dan fan, but i know there is a way to beat lin dan. That is play like Lee Hyun-il, the game Lee play lin dan in the korea open last year. It is to play a very patience game, and to slow down Lin dan's game. i think that's the only way !

LCW could join Chinese winter camp for 3 months
Well right now, LD only has himself to beat, meaning only a poor outing from LD could jeopardize his game. I did see LCW's attack on LD's right court works once a while but that doesn't last very long.

The only weakness I can see with Lin Dan is when he is forced to use his backhand, as he much prefers overhead. The reason he can get away with overhead forehands is because he move so quickly, so some serious trickery would be necessary to pull Lin Dan completely out of position.

"you are probably right. Lee HI was good at that, he played so slow that made Lin Dan fell sleep, then he stole the match from Lindan's dream."
I think this is even funnier!
..maybe I can continue like this: "He did not only fell asleep and lost the game, but had nightmares. In them he fight with his racket by throwing it against big bear li mao! "

i've not seen a player who could consistently beat LD.
i don't think there are many, if any, players out there who have played more than 5 matches against him and have a better head-to-head record, at least not since 2004 when he really upped his game.
there's no denying he's at a different level at the moment, who knows how many more titles he would have won had he not been asked to concede to his teammates for qualification points.

I think it would be attack more.
I think that is the only way , LCW was trying this but he did do a lot of unforced lifts.
LD is an attacking machine , and can jumpsmash at the back of the court and then in 2 seconds be at the front for a net kill :O
I think the way for LCW is to be less defensive , and beat LD at the net.
Like Andrew Smith vs Taufik > I think AS new he wasn't going to do well , so he attacked much more than normal , and was beating Taufik at the net. But then Taufik started taking the match seriously and won :-(
